By the way, you asked about my name. It is Gene. A few years before I retired from teaching, I suddenly started receiving my checks and other communications as Eugene. I went to the principal and complained, telling me that I was in no way Eugene.
He answered, saying that since he was my boss, he'd call me anything he damned pleased. I really got angry. I said, "It's bad enough working under these lousy conditions, but I'll not let you christen me." I put up so much stink that the district started referring to me as Gene again.
